Faculty Member's Handbook. Strategies for Preventing Alcohol and Other Drug Problems. The College Series.
CSR, Inc., Washington, DC.
This handbook for higher education faculty is designed to inform them of the nature and extent of alcohol and other drug abuse on the nation's campuses and to enlist their involvement in responding to these problems. Based on the premise that each individual can make a difference, the faculty member is encouraged to help shape the campus environment in important ways that discourage alcohol and drug use. Chapter 1, "The Scope of the Problem," gives statistics and trends that depict what is happening on campuses today. It also describes federal efforts to prevent drug and alcohol abuse. Chapter 2, "What Faculty Members Can Do," lists eight specific actions a faculty member can take to bring the issues into the classroom. Chapter 3, "When You Are Concerned About Someone You Know," contains information that faculty members will need to take action when a problem strikes close to their classrooms or homes. Chapter 4 summarizes key points made in the handbook. The appendix contains information on different sources for policy statements and information about self-help groups and includes a series of tables and figures that reveal more about drug problems on American campuses.
